ABSTRACT
Jailed Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti was placed in solitary confinement after he called on Palestinians to launch a popular resistance campaign against Israel. The former Fatah leader, who is serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison for his role in five murders, in a statement last week in advance of Land Day called on the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority to stop all coordination with Israel in the economic and security realms and to stop peace negotiations. Barghouti, considered a potential next president of the Palestinian Authority, reportedly will remain in solitary confinement for a week and will also be denied visiting rights for a month. "It must be understood that there is no partner for peace in Israel when the settlements have doubled," Barghouti said in the statement. "It is the Palestinian people's right to oppose the occupation in all means, and the resistance must be focused on the 1967 territories." It is the first time that Barghouti, who has been in prison since 2002, has called for a cessation of peace negotiations with Israel. He also called for a boycott of all Israeli products. It is not clear how he got the statement out of prison and into a public forum. Prisons Service told The Jerusalem Post Monday that Barghouti was not placed in solitary because of the content of the letter, but because he sent a letter without Prison Service authorization. .
